Fairview Mountain Golf Club's Brian McDonald and Dennis Bradley (Copper Point Golf Club) have been neck and neck all year in the 2022 PGA of BC Professional Development Program (PDP) Order of Merit presented by Sunice & Bobby Jones, and find themselves atop the leaderboard with just one month left before final tabulations are calculated for 2022.

Those finishing among the top 10 on the Order of Merit receive a share of a bursary purse valued at approximately $5,000. The current top-10 cutoff is 71 points, while those holding at least 37 points are sitting in a Top 100 position as of this update.

The 2022 PDP race and submission window both officially close at 4:00pm PST on Nov. 30. Any eligible activities or undertakings from Dec. 1, 2022 until the deadline will be considered. Please click below to view the updated standings, make a requisition for points or view all other PDP information. Members are reminded that all requisitions require supporting documentation to be sent to [email protected] by official closing to be considered.

The final Order of Merit standings and the announcement of our Top 100 Golf Professionals of 2022 will be released in early January.

All members are encouraged to review the points they've been credited with to ensure their totals are accurate. Please contact Membership & Events Manager Doug Titterington at [email protected] if you feel a discrepancy exists in your total or for a more detailed breakdown of points awarded.
As the PGA of BC administration team looks to secure future venues for PGA of BC championships or other events, all members are encouraged to advise of their interest in hosting the Association for an event in seasons to come.

Hosting a PGA of BC championship tournament or other event is a tremendous way to showcase your facility to your colleagues and other members of BC's golf industry and community. As a great example of how hosting a PGA of BC event can raise the profile of your facility amongst your peers, seven of the past nine recipients of the Association's member-determined Golf Facility of the Year Award have earned the honour during a year in which they hosted a PGA of BC or PGA of Canada championship.

Although our events and championships generally occupy the same weeks on the calendar from year-to-year, the administration team is pleased to work with your facility to ensure a successful event for all involved. For reference, click here to review the PGA of BC's 2022 schedule of events.

Please direct any inquiries or expressions of interest to PGA of BC Membership & Events Manager Doug Titterington at [email protected]. When doing so, please indicate the events or championships for which you have interest, as well as which future season you may be able to accommodate.
Congratulations to University Golf Club Apprentice Professional Christine Wong (pictured second from right) who represented Team Canada on their way to a runners-up finish at the 2022 Women's PGA Cup.

The event took place October 24-29 at Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico's Twin Warriors Golf Club where the United States (-1) claimed a two-stroke victory over the Canadians in team competition.

Teams from Australia, Great Britain & Ireland, South Africa, and Sweden were also strongly represented at the championship.

Wong joined Emma de Groot, Katy Rutherford, Casey Ward, and Caroline Ciot on Team Canada in a format where five players played their own ball. The low three scores on each team make up a team total for that day, with the low aggregate score of all three rounds determining the champion.

The 2022 event was the second running of this championship, first hosted in 2019 where Team Canada also finished runner-up to the United States at the inaugural event held in at OMNI Barton Creek Resort & Spa in Austin, Texas.

Assistant/Associate Golf Professional - Sunset Ranch Golf & Country Club
Class "A" Professional, Sunshine Coast Golf & Country Club

Member Since: 2012

What is the most rewarding part about being a member of the PGA of BC?
I was an LPGA member when I came to the Sunshine Coast Golf and Country Club. My Head Professional Jim Pringle asked if I would be interested in applying for membership with the PGA of Canada. I was interested and I did become a member. I haven't looked back.

At which golf facility did you first begin working within the industry, and who was the PGA Professional?
Hirsch Creek Golf & Winter Club in Kitimat, BC is where I began my career in the business, hand-picking range balls off the range in 1981. It was back breaking work, however I was able to save my tiny pay towards my first set of Golf Clubs.

Who has influenced your career the most, and how?
My two children Erin and Ewen were the driving force towards my career. I have had the pleasure of working with both my children in the industry - now that is cool.

What is your most cherished golf memory?
I played golf at Torry Pines with Billy Casper. However my most cherished golf memory is playing golf with my dad and son. "Hey Grandpa, check out this shot". yelled my son Ewen. What a great day.
